Mats Undén – A Meter Apart
Swedish sound artist and musician Mats Undén has called Darwin home for over a decade. With a passion for sound design and experimental music, he creates minimal electronica and makes noise, often performed and recorded live with analogue synthesisers and assorted tactile sound equipment.
To create experimental music, ambient collages and soundscapes is to Mats a similar process to creating abstract art; he works with patterns and different colors of sound and creates a new and unique experience for himself and the listener.
In this performance he explores how live piano improvisations, influenced by blues and avant-garde jazz, interacts with analogue synthesizer patterns, feedback and noise. Played and manipulated live with a limited, fully analogue setup, originating from the late sixties to mid seventies.
“I love the way sounds change and evolve through time, a slight turn of a knob, a change of the patch; you never really know what you will get. It’s always an adventure, a journey, full of surprises.”
With a strictly limited number of people in the audience, a complete ban on all devices, and with the chairs a meter apart, you are left alone, with no distractions, to fully immerse in the performance.
